In 1968 he made his first record with his band, the Wondering Souls, on Savoy Records. In 1986 his record of “The Ground is Level at the Foot of the Cross” became a Gospel hit, garnering big awards.
Harold Williamson and the Wondering Souls with Harold as the lead singer and songwriter have shared stages with Shirley Caesar, Mighty Clouds of Joy, James Cleveland, and many other greats of gospel. They have played the famed Apollo Theater and many other places around the country.
In the 1990’s Harold moved back to Shelby and recreated his band, the New Wondering Souls, with Shelby musicians. Their 2006 CD is called “Hooked On God’s Love” and almost all the songs were written by Harold. His music is uplifting, although it often touches on hardships that he and others face. In performance and on record the sound is big and full and dynamic.
